Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker returns to the glorious Wiltern for the holiday season, and all the wonder and beauty of this stunning production are back as well: the gorgeous Swarovski crystal-laden costumes, life-sized matrushka dolls, 10-foot-tall silk puppets and a special "Dove of Peace" formation, where two dancers become one bird with a 20-foot wingspan. This is your chance to see the award-winning principal dancers and corps de ballet perform Olympic-worthy leaps, lifts and pirouettes as they tell the heartwarming tale of Masha meeting her prince.

Captive parking. $12.00. Considering most L.A. parking fees are pretty reasonable, even the Chandler Pavilion UCLA has a lot of nerve charging for that charge for parking off-hours in what is largely an empty lot.Tune-In Festival L.A.: eighth blackbird travel • Mar 31 2014 star this tip starred

Spacey, surreal, different, memorable. The coordination between the live dancers and the film was neat. The music set an eerie (almost creepy) tone. The sequences were executed with grace and professionalism. Primary complaint: too long / not enough changes/variation. The repetition seemed important to the sentiment communicated, but was simply drawn out too far, to the point of losing the attention of the audience. Many in the audience seemed dazed or even nauseated by the unbroken rhythm and projected images. Dozens left quietly after the 2nd movement. The dancers were amazing, and I was frankly beginning to feel sorry for them (it looked exhausting). Sometimes shorter is better.

A landmark work, truly worth reviving. To be able to see Lucinda Childs on film in the original production (re-created in Sol Le Witt's film) made one realize why she entered the annals of modern dance history.No disrespect intended to the young...continued
Lucinda Childs began her career as choreographer and performer in 1963 as an original member of the Judson Dance Theater in New York. After forming her own dance company in 1973, Ms. Childs collaborated with Robert Wilson and Philip Glass on the opera Einstein on the Beach, participating as leading performer and choreographer, for which she was awarded a Village Voice Obie. She also participated in the revivals of the opera in 1984, and 1992 and Ms. Childs choreography for the opera will be reconstructed for the 2012 revival of the opera which will open The Brooklyn Academy of Music’s Next Wave Festival in September 2012.
